Summary:
Bertie Wooster's in the supernatural soup! After a swinging party in New York leaves him accidentally affianced to an elven heiress with more than the usual amount of matrimonial influence to throw around, where's a young gent to turn? Why, to old acquaintance Harold 'Mimsy' Dresden, part time investigator, part time stage magician, full time wizard. Together they'll have to scuttle Bertie's engagement and solve the mystery of a missing sword that could completely upend the New York social scene. In their corner they have their manservants--the inimitable Jeeves and the Machiavellian Johnson--as well as a tiny bouncer, a massive bookseller, and a shady informant who likes his payment in dirty novels. Arrayed against them are Mimsy's parole officer and Bertie's fellow suitors. Oh, and the entire might of the Old Families, those inscrutable Unseelie socialites who can't touch iron and won't ever let you out of a debt... or an engagement.

Review:
This fic is a delight. I'm not quite sure how binz and shiplizard managed it, but they combined the tone and time period of Jeeves and Wooster with universe of the Dresden Files, included almost all the characters from both, and it works! It's like cuddling up under a warm blanket with some hot chocolate.

The plot is a combination of most Jeeves and Wooster stories--Bertie trying to escape another engagement--with plot elements from the Dresden Summer Knight novel. All the Dresden characters are re-envisioned into the 1920s setting, and it's one wiz-bang of a rollicking case fic as Harry and Bertie try to extricate themselves from one sticky situation after another and Jeeves and Marcone come to the rescue with clever behind-the-scenes planning.
